Sweet 16: Jensen's uniform recovered; incident being investigated as theft

FARGO – No, it wasn’t Taylor Swift.

Fargo Police said Monday that the stolen jersey of North Dakota State quarterback Brock Jensen was found in the Fargodome after the game on Saturday night and the incident is being investigated as a theft.

Jensen’s No. 16 gold top was discovered missing about 10 to 15 minutes before the Bison were scheduled to take to Gate City Bank Field for warmups. The senior wore No. 18 instead and threw for a career-high 259 yards in a 56-10 win over Ferris State (Mich.).

Swift played to a sold-out show on Friday night.

Fargo police Ltd. Joel Vettel said a Fargodome employee found the jersey. He said police are working with the dome on possible charges. Vettel said a suspect has been identified.

He said it was taken out of the NDSU locker room, which generally is a locked facility within the dome.

“They are re-evaluating the security of that area,” Vettel said. ‘The good thing is the jersey is back.”
